by the republican challenger mitt romney and lost very much by president obama. but yesterday in santa barbara, i told this giant room full of people in this theater when asked about this subject that as clearly and as cleanly as mr. romney won the the debate, it still seems politically important that mr. romney did not win the debate in a way that produced a single sound byte. i mean, yeah, 60 million people watched romney win the debate overall, but for the 240 or so million american who is did not watch the debate who might have been curious about how it went, there was no single sound byte to take away from the debate to remember and repeat as the reason that mr. romney won. and so i sat at this event that even though romney won that night, won on debate night, there wasn't any day two story that could explain to people why it was that he won. i said, really, thinking about it, the only line, the single line that survived the debate, the only line that i think anybody can remember from the debate, i said this to a room of 2,000 people. there's one line that everybody can remember from that de
, thanks to mitt romney and paul ryan. why does it happen that 90% of identified republicans according to the gallup poll are white in a country that is now 62% non- hispanic white? looking at this house some moved away towards the democratic party, and what -- looking at how some moved away towards the democratic party. they were very good at taking some of the chaos of the 1960's, using it against the democrats, and convincing these middle- class people that government had been identified with the interests of minorities and the poor and was not working for them anymore and luring them over to become the republican base. that title gets a lot of attention, because we have seen such a rationalized -- such a campaign, particularly as mitt romney and paul ryan use welface that is -- use a version of welfare that is blackface. it may not be working for them. tavis: the subtitle is no less provocative. "why we long for a golden age that never was." a majority of americans that believe our best days are behind us. there are many who believe that maybe the 21st century belongs to china or s
republican experts say romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. >> woodruff: romney also criticized the president today on iraq argui that u.s. influence there has been hurt by what he called the abrupt withdrawal of american forces. and he insisted he could do better at brokering peace between israel and the palestinians. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. on this vital issue, the president has failed. >> woodruff: that statement stood in contrast to last may when romney told donors that a two-stateolution was almost unthinkable to accomplish. democrats like senator john kerry at last month's convention seized on shifts like that one to argue that romney is not ready to guide foreign policy. >> mr. romney, here's a little advice. before you debate barack obama on foreign policy, you better finish the debate with yourself. >> woodruff: today the new obama ad pointed to romney's much criticized overseas trip during th summer to argue he la
was quick in its response to romney's speech at vmi. madelieine albright slammed the republican candidate during a conference call with reporters saying romney's foreign policy is full of platitudes but short on specifics. staying with foreign policy, we're learning more about the security situation in libya leading up to the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate. chairman of the house oversight committee is expected to hold hearings tomorrow now after an e-mail from the u.s. embassy in libya to the state department shows that it had requested a special security team stay in libya for another four months. the senior state department official tells the associated press that request was granted but a commander on that security team report eed will testify th chris stevens who was killed during the attack wanted the security time to stay even longer. that request was turned down. the state department says the 16 member security team was based in tripoli and would not have made a difference at the time of the attack in benghazi. the president's top counter-terrorism official expected to arrive
the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pugh survey which shows republican candidate making huge gains with women voters. he's now tied with the president according to pugh. 47-47. just a month ago, the president had an 18-point lead in this poll among women voters. today mr. romney rallies voters in iowa a day after delivering what his campaign called a major foreign policy address. speaking to an audience of cadets at the virginia military institute, romney hit on a wide range of hot button issues in the muslim world from the war in syria and the obama administration shifting response to the deadly attack on the nebs b -- the embassy in benghazi. republican candidate suggesting he would take a harder line to make sure that tehran does not get a nuclear weapon. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forc
-september. he has dropped significantly and the republican nominee mitt romney is now leading the president by 4 points. clearly the debate last week has given romney a huge bounce in the polls. >> reporter: the presidential candidates are crisscrossing paths in the polls. the republican nominee is fundraising in virginia today. his fourth event in five days in the battleground state feeding off his debate performance he has made ground in two key demographics. among women the president had an 18 point lead before the debate. now they are dead even among female voters. 47 to 47%. among voters under 30 years of age, romney gained 10 points in the days following the first debate. now 42% of young voters say they view romney favorably. for the first time the president acknowledged his lackluster debate performance last night in l.a. this following a concert with katy perry and stevie wonder. >> everybody here is incredible professionals. this is an incredible show. they are such great friends. and they just perform flawlessly night after night, uhm, i can't all of us say the same. [ laughter ] >> r
but i was a severely conservative republican governor. >> that was mitt romney just eight months ago when he was claiming to have been a severely conservative governor. paul ryan really has been a severely conservative member of congress. team obama is wondering how paul ryan will follow mitt romney's swerve towards the center. >> i think the big question is which paul ryan do we get? do we get this same sort of contact meal comeelian that we saw in mitt romney. >> okay, joy reid. tell us how does the severely conservative paul ryan play it thursday night? >> that is a good question. the thing is mitt romney has nothing invested in his authenticity. he'll do whatever it takes, he'll take whatever it takes, because he just wants the 51% he needs, as he said. paul ryan on the other hand has a lot invested in his authenticity. he has a lot invested in this mythic brand. >> not since he's been getting examined more closely. >> and also since he's been dragged into the mitt romney world, making it up as you go along. he doesn't get to have his white board out, he doesn't get to talk about
% including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent mitt romney had a problem with being dishonest in the primary. was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think it's clearly changed. >> dishonest? oh, he's clearly changed. >> i love that moment with newt during the republican primary when he says yes, flat out that mitt romney is a liar. i think this could be the start -- if mitt romney starts losing again and looking like a loser again, you're going to hear more than newt gingrich coming out and saying he hasn't been true to conservative values, he's not running as a conservative. there are going to be a lot more complaints about even the rhetorical shift to the center. when they hear him say i'm not really going to cut taxes for the top 1%, they start going, wait a second. that was the deal that we had. that's what you've been running on. that's what we're looking for. are you really one of us and how would you really be as a president mitt romney. >> and steve, conservatives who seem in many cases to be obama haters first and conservatives second, they're having a goo
campaign is hit romney as a republican extremist, not as a flip-flopper. as you see, the campaigns have bounced back and forth between those two strategies. same exact thing with bush against kerry in 2004, they had the same strategic debate. do they hit kerry as a liberal or a flip-flopper? they did both. they ended up with flip-flopper. do you hit them more on character or policy? >> ryan lizza, thanks very much. >> thanks, guys. >>> stay with cnn for the vice presidential debate, also on thursday night. our coverage begins at 7:00 eastern. go to cnn.com as well. >>> a new memo obtain by cnn showing u.s. embassy staff in libya had concerns about security back in february and requested a 16-member special security team be allowed to remain ontheir departure date. that request was denied. the state department insists an extension of the security team would not have made a difference. >> it turns out there was a glitch with the launch of the first private cargo flight to the international space station. spacex says one of the capsules failed on launch. a communications satellite also abo
election and a new research poll shows republican mitt romney has surged after the first debate, now leading president obama 49 to 45%. >> romney will campaign in iowa today while the president heads to battleground ohio and the first lady joins supporters in loudoun county, virginia. >> reporter: president obama campaigning in california speaking to donors at a $20,000 per ticket dinner in san francisco monday night. the president saying it is time for them to get, quote, almost obsessive. mr.obama urging supporters to do more to reach out if their families and friends in the battleground states. republican presidential nominee mitt romney meeting with voters in virginia. >> he would continue to spend a trillion dollars more than we take in every year n my view, that is immoral and wrong. if i'm president of the united states, i i will cut federal spending. i will cut it and get us on tracky to balanced budget. >> reporter: his running mate paul reinholding a rally in michigan monday night. he is support the by kid rock. >> i'm proud to say they have had elected our first black pres
legislate romney in a republican house and senate, will extend all the bush tax cuts for one year, do fundamental tax reform that's revenue neutral, not a tax increase, passing the ryan budget to bring entitlement spending down so the spending goes from 24% of gdp to 20%, 16%. if obama wins, democratic house and senate, his budget takes spending up to 38% of the economy during that same period. a government twice as large. if you have split government, obama gets elected in a republican house or republican house or senator, what happens is exactly what happened two years ago which is they'll extent bush tax cuts for two years and fight it out in two years. there's not going to be a cliff. everybody knows this because if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for every
-on-one interview with the republican presidential nominee mitt romney. he's heading for ohio where we have brand new poll numbers just coming in. we're going to see what a difference one debate has made. also, rare access into the syrian president bashar al assad's inner circle. a one-time insider sits down with cnn, admits covering up crimes and so much more. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> this just coming into "the situation room" as we await our interview with mitt romney, we have brands new poll numbers from one of the most crucial battleground states in the country certainly on the cnn electoral college map, ohio. both presidential candidates will be there today. and look at this. romney's catching up dramatically. president obama's still ahead 51% to 47%. but his four-point lead falls now within the poll's sampling error. the president had a nine-point lead in our most recent poll of polls in ohio, which was completed just before last week's presidential debate in denver. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us from the state capital of columbus righ
at this, it's dramatic turnaround from governor romney two weeks ago a lot of republicans saying is there any way we can win without ohio? you know the history as well as anyone. no republican has ever won without this state. that soul searching is now over. the governor will be here today. you're going to talk to him in a bit. they now say ohio is back in play. they need it back in play. no way to win without it. >> a critical state. there are some areas in this new poll where significant gaps do remain, john. how does that bode for the final month of campaigning? we're now in the final month. >> reporter: it's fascinating. we are in the final month. four weeks from today america votes. here's something encouraging for governor romney. because this is a state with a significant african-american population, president obama has a strong base here. governor romney has to do well among white voters. look at this among white men, a huge lead 30 points among white men 64 to 34, he has to keep president obama probably around 37%. overall among the white vote. so encouraging for the gov
of republicans before the debate, they would say variations of romney needs to show people that he is an alternative to obama, that he's someone who could be president. and i think in this debate, a lot of people thought that he showed that. and so, that's why you see, i mean, this enthusiasm. romney needs people to go out and vote, so this is a good indicator for republicans. >> and yet, the obama campaign thinks they have found something out of that debate that could work for them, which brings us to the "sesame street" ad. we played it. it's something president obama is even working into his stump speech. >> elmo has been seen in a white suburban. he's driving for the border. oscar's hiding out in his trash can. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again, but he's going to bring the hammer down on "sesame street." >> o.j. simpson and "sesame street" in the same new line there, anne. certainly, this is the kind of thing people are talking about. it's going to run all over cable today, but will it make a difference? >> yeah, you know, it's good pictures, it made f
are getting big betting on ohio. analysts say ohio is a must win for mitt romney. no republican has won the white house without taking the votes out of ohio first, this year, 18. room any campaigned step up the ohio game sending more workers to the state. governor romney will spend four of the next five days stumping there. that is the plan. new presidents show governor romney riding high after last week's strong debate performance. there are still no new polls from ohio since last week but a just-released reuters national poll shows the nominees are in a dead heat. 45 completely erasing the lead of the president. the latest poll from pew shows governor romney with a four-point lead. he was trailing president obama by four points three weeks ago. wendell is at the white house. but, first, john roberts is traveling with the romney camp this afternoon. what is the enthusiasm like for the governor there? >>reporter: well, he is trying to narrow the enthusiasm gap. he won this county, madison county, in the caucus with only 17 percent of the vote. 64 percent voted "other" in the caucus. now
, there is a spike in the republican enthusiasm for romney, that is why you see the voters shifting towards romney. and it depends on how you wait to sample. and yes, one poll seems to be a little more republican than the gallup -- polls, there is more enthusiasm among likely republican voters than likely democratic voters. this has been a problem for the democrats for six months, and you're seeing more in this poll than the last debate. and the big moment will be joe biden, and paul ryan, you see them prepping in a way they have not done before. they have done a lot of mock debate sessions with joe biden. paul ryan has never been on this big a stage before. he has reviewed the sarah palin debate, watched joe biden's speeches to try to get a sense of joe biden. they will be seated. but i can tell you the republicans are a bit nervous about this, because joe biden is very good in settings like this, because -- being a former u.s. senator. >>> now, andrea, what was the chief takeaway from the speech that romney gave today. i know he did emphasize for a while, libya, of course that has been an ongoin
debate. you mentioned governor romney does have some debate right now. the republican base is energized right now, so this is how his campaign views this. paul ryan can continue that momentum or he can do something that chokes off that momentum. >> there was a lot of pressure in 2008 when biden was going against palin and he had to come off as not being condescending, not seeming sort of dismissive of her. it's a very different dynamic. >> yeah. he didn't want to appear patronizing at all during that debate. he had to really watch himself, and he's told me since then that that was sort of the hardest thing for him to do. he doesn't have any of those constraints this time around. paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, experienced legislator, i think he's going to take the gloves off. in talking to the biden folks today, one of them said you can expect the vicpresident to draw a sharp contrast. when the campaign starts talking about sharp contrast, you know that he's going to go on the attack. >> he's pretty -- he's obviously known for off the cuff marks but he is also pretty
race. i think romney did a good job of selling it to the undecided leaning republicans out there and you're seeing them move home. quite frankly, we knew they were going to move home at some point. i think he closed that case with them. he's getting the undecided leaning republicans to come home to him. it will be a close race like we always said it would be. >> ari, a lot of republicans last week were complaining about previous polls that showed governor romney trailing, saying they were skewed. what do you make of this poll? >> i think it's skewed. this poll is plus five assuming a republican higher turnout. i just don't think that's going to be e case. look, obviously i like the poll numbers that pew has, but that doesn't matter. the real issue here is in 2004 when bush beat kerry, the turnout between the two parties was even. in 2008 when barack obama won with this huge election, seven point democratic advantage. the previous pew poll was ridiculous. it had a ten point democratic turnout advantage. not going to happen. this one has a five point republican advantage. as
issue with the party make-up of people surveyed, saying it tilts republican compared to september. the romney campaign, on the other hand, says it's pleased with the numbers. joining us now, jim acosta with the romney campaign in newport news, virginia and on the phone, dan lothian with president obama's campaign. jim, you're on the trail with the romney campaign. what's the reaction to the latest polling, because republicans were complaining about these polls as soon as last week. now the poll is good news for them. are they complaining? >> well, anderson, i have to tell you i just saw mitt romney standing out in a drenching rain in newport news just a couple hours ago and he still had a smile on his face. they're pretty happy. they have not seen poll numbers like this in some time. i have to tell you, i talked to a senior romney advisor about this pew research center poll and they look at a couple things here in relation to these polls. they are looking at the enthusiasm that is coming out at some of their campaign events. i can tell you, we have been at several of these campaig
. >> romney's response showed a lack of presidential character and republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now think of what mitt romney might do as president. >> eliot: for more on mitt romney's assault on foreign policy record and focus in the middle east i'm joined by james traub who writes regular column "terms of engagement" for foreign policy.com and jon soltz, an iraq war veteran and co-founder and chairman of vote vets.org . is there anything tangible to bitebite into. >> it is adder. the bellicose language is the classic bellicose language, democrats are soft. democrats are weak. democrats are not resolute. but in this speech they've gotten closer to president obama than they were before. in the case of iran, which is iwhich has always been romney's big issue, he didn't say we should be prepared to bomb iran. no. he said, because he's trying to show that he's moderate now we should be prepared to impose tight sanctions on iran. >> eliot: what does that mean? the sanctions are crushing the irania
waited hours in line to get in to the civic auditorium. and protesters, from antiwar to governor romney supporters. the irony, the diverse group created an alliance of activists and republicans with the same message, don't reelect them. there were counterchants. this is the president's sixth visit to san fransisco this year. he will take with him a lot of money and obviously closer to his goal of raising $1 billion for his campaign war chest. he spends the night here and then heads to ohio tomorrow, a crucial battleground state. . >>> meanwhile, mitt romney's performance in last week's debate has given him a big bounce right past the president in one new national poll. a pew research survey gives the republican nominee a 4 point edge over voters. president obama had an eight point lead in that poll a week ago. romney has pulled even with the president among women voters. erasing a 18 point obama heed going into the debate. and the republican nominee is doing better with younger voters. his popularity with the under 30 crowd jumped 10 points in the days following the debate. and mr. romn
new polls show the race between president obama and republican rival mitt romney is closer than ever. nbc's tracie potts has more from washington. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. they're raising a lot of money, too. which is why we'll see more of those ads. romney today in iowa and ohio. speaking of campaign slogans, turns out he may end up repeating a new one he coined yesterday. we first heard it on monday. he argued president obama's policies made the world more dangerous. >> the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> reporter: romney promised to create one person to deal with the middle east, arm syria's rebels, sanction iran if needed, expand the navy and push free trade. democrats weren't impressed. >> i'm a professor. if one of my students turned it in, they would get a c because he gave absolutely no specifics. >> reporter: pew has it up four points, gallup says the positive jobs report gave president obama a five-point boost. courting hispanics there, but he also said that mitt romney's debate was more style over
by democrats, he gets panned by republicans. mitt romney can't figure out which side of the debate to come down on like you saw in his speech yesterday and the six attempts before that. the guy doesn't understand the world as it exists today. >> stephanie: right. well, yeah i think madeline albright referred to him calling russia the number one foe. he said in europe where putin's russia cast a long shadow over american policy. madeline said of the various weird things that romney said his position on russia is truly out of date. >> yeah, those parts of the speech were from the height of the cold war, and apparently nobody told romney that the century changed. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: but as usual, and this goes to foreign and domestic policies you know, there is no specifics. again madeline albright said i just find him very shallow. i'm a professor if one of my students turned that in he would get a c because he gave absolutely no specifics. >> yeah it's a vacuous set of talking points. it's not even -- the dull phrase that you complain in poetry and govern in pr
of mitt romney since ron naltd reagan support immigration reform. of course, for many republicans that's called amnesty. romney doesn't support it, not yet. we'll see in all the debates, but we'll see if he changes or not his position. but the conversation changed because with george w. bush, he was for immigration reform with a path to citizenship. immediately after that we got the rejection that would have given two million students the possibility of staying. then it was replicated in alabama and georgia. so instead of discussing the possibility of what to do with 11 million undocumented immigrants, here we have incredibly tough laws on immigrations and the approach changed completely. nowadays we're discussing only dream map probably or defer action by president barack obama when the conversation should have been much, much wider. >> i remember ronald regan was quite positive about immigration. he was quite pro hispanic. he gave amnesty the 3 million. >> yes. republicans were doing great. as you kw, reagan used to say that latinos are republicans, they just don't know it. >> well,
battleground, obama and romney both in ohio tonight. the state that matters most to republicans. first, romney kicks off the day at a family farm in iowa where he will be speaking minutes from now. and the battle over big bird, the president turns his attack into a punch line and a commercial, as sesame workshop and senator john mccain cried foul over the obama campaign's new bird ad. >> elmo is -- has been seen in a white suburban he's driving for the border. oscar is hide out in his trash can. we're cracking down on them. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring the hammer down on sesame street. >> one thing that president obama can't run on is his record, and so big bird, i guess, is a fun thing to talk about. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and mitt romney are heading back to ohio today in a very different situation than the last time they campaigned in the battleground state. the new pew poll know shows governor romney ahead among likely voters. it's the latest dose of reality for the obama camp in a race that
